We explore recent trends in the labour force participation rates of men aged 55-69 in Canada. Following steady declines in participation until the mid-1990s, the participation rates of older men have increased substantially and have reached historically high rates among those aged 65-69. We consider various factors that may influence the participation rates of older men and suggest that improvements in health, higher education, and increased attachment of older wives to the labour market are likely important factors driving recent trends in older men’s participation in Canada.
